Updated: Kathy Neal Makes Surprise Exit from Assembly Race

Updated below. In a somewhat cryptic farewell, 18th Assembly District candidate Kathy Neal has suspended her campaign, according to a statement sent early today. “I am proud of the progress we made in such a short period of time and greatly appreciate the help, partnerships, and backing that emerged from a widely diverse base of support,” Neal said. “While I will not be an active participant in the race at this time, I will continue to be involved in state and local politics, because I am committed to improving the lives of those in our community, especially for those among us who are less fortunate or disenfranchised.”
